Beautiful, clean & convenient home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

A+ for both the Apartment and Ava! Our family of four spent two weeks here and loved it. The location is perfect; close to beach, boardwalk, transportation, amenities, and lots of restaurants. The Apartment itself is modern and clean with all the conveniences of home. Our 11 and 13 year old kids loved the pool (which we had mostly to ourselves) and the speedy WiFi! It was SO perfect we spent more days lazing around the property than we'd anticipated, just relaxing. Ava is a wonderful host and very responsive. You couldn't ask for more and we highly recommend staying here.

Family friendly apartment

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the property the owner Ava met us at the apartment. Unfortunately, the air conditioning and the internet/tv weren't working and after a long day of travels and a couple of cranky teenagers, these two things were a problem. Ava spent a lot of time resolving the issues and the air-conditioning was fixed that evening. We had internet the next day. Ava lives close to the property and checked in frequently to see if we needed anything. We had everything we needed in the apartment including a washer and dryer. We also had access to the community pool but we were the only ones using it. We liked the location and a mini-supermarket was within walking distance. The apartment was very clean and accommodated myself and three teenagers. We would stay at this location again and would recommend it. We loved having a back porch and a back yard

Exactly as advertised/expected

  • 5 of 5

The property was identical to the pictures, was in a great location with parking, beach access, and walking access to stores and restaraunts We spent 10 days there and loved every minute on the island. Ava was a great owner and totally great to deal with. For the price and the location you aren't going to find a better value on the island We will be back!!

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The photos of the apartment accurately show the standard of decoration and furnishings. A very comfortable apartment with air conditioning in the bedrooms which was essential in the heat of July. The wifi speed was very good and a must as we had a teenager with us! The gardens are beautiful and Ava obviously takes great pride in keeping them looking neat and tidy just like the apartment. Location wise, just off the main coast road in Hastings it was ideal for getting about easily as we could just walk across to the boardwalk for the beach or local restaurants, just down the road for a mini mart or easily grab a "boogie bus" to get to St Lawrence Gap. Excellent value and great quality accommodation.

The perfect choice!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in Barbados for almost 2 weeks for treatments at the Barbados Fertility Centre. Because of the length of our stay, we decided to go with a vacation rental as oppose to a hotel for the first time. We could not be happier! Ava's unit was perfect for us. It looks exactly as it does in the pictures - is clean, modern and beautifully decorated. We instantly felt at home, relaxed and comfortable (which is crucial when you are in the middle of fertility treatments!). It was literally a 2 minute walk to the clinic which made things even easier.

The location was great not only for this reason, but also because it was so central and easy to walk to great beaches and restaurants. We didn't even need to rent a car because jumping on a bus or catching a van was so easy as it was steps away from the main road in Hastings.

Ava, the unit owner, was so lovely both before while organizing our trip and while we were there. It is obvious that she takes pride in her apartment and wants to give guests the best experience possible.

All in all we were so happy with our choice and would not stay anywhere else when we return to Barbados. Do not hesitate to choose Ava's Maple Gardens apartment!

Newly refurbished 2 bedroom apartment, centrally located at Maple Gardens. Very conveniently located on the South Coast of Barbados. Across the road from the popular 1.5 kilometer board walk. It is the first Barbados Boardwalk by the sea, complete with panoramas, seats and retreats. All ages and abilities use it. A breathtaking 10 minute stroll to one of the best beaches on the South Coast, Rockley, is only a stone throw away. St. Lawrence Gap, the entertainment center of Barbados is just 2 km away. Restaurants, malls, bars, convenience stores, fast food restaurants, within walking distance. The historical Garrison is just 1 km away. Should you prefer not to rent a car, public transport is at your finger tips. For the golfers, Rockley 9 hole is 1.5 Km away and the local favorite Barbados Golf Club is 9 km away. Yet, once you are at Margate Gardens, surrounded by lush tropical gardens and central communal pool you feel relaxed and unaware of all that is going on so close. Quiet, serene and well kept.

Golf: In Barbados' Golfers can choose from among some of the best championship courses in the Caribbean.'

Sunny weather mostly all year round makes Barbados an ideal location for golf and the perfect vacation spot for golfers and 'would-be' golfers!

The glorious weather conditions are complemented by world-class golf courses and facilities. Most golf clubs offer professional instruction.

Several hotels and resorts offer special golf packages and Barbados is increasingly being regarded as one of the top English speaking islands for a Caribbean golf vacation.

Several golf tournaments are hosted throughout the year, attracting participants from a number of countries including Europe and North America. In December 2006 Barbados hosted the World Golf Championships World Cup. The four-day tournament was held at the Sandy Lane Resort on the west coast of the island.

In October 2004, perhaps the world's most famous golfer - Tiger Woods - chose Barbados as the venue for his wedding. The ceremony took place at Sandy Lane Golf Course.

Mingle with the locals at the Barbados Golf Club, or play at the spectacular Apes Hill Golf and Country Club; one of the most breath taking golf courses in the Caribbean.
